BC sex workers want a say in Supreme Court battle against prostitution laws

Sex workers in BC are asking to be heard in the Supreme Court case to decide whether prostitution laws are unconstitutional. Kat Kinch, a lawyer representing the sex workers and advocacy groups wishing to intervene, says that the current case does not focus enough on those women who are forced to enter the sex trade for survival, and thinks their evidence will strengthen the case.

Kinch expects to hear if they will be granted intervener status in May.
